The 'L'Eixample' District: L'Eixample
The city effectively broke out of the constraining walls of the old city in the 19th Century, to follow a logical geometric street plan based on blocks of 137m sides. At that time the chamfered corners permitted the completed turn of a carriage with three horses in line. Ildefons Cerdá, the Architect, originally planned the blocks for residential and commercial property with street level entrance, three floors and a large central garden in each block – at the time a pioneering design in urban planning.
Passeig de Gràcia: By the end of the 19th Century and at the beginning of the 20th, the elegant residences along 'Passeig de Gracia' accommodated the highest echelons of Catalan society, but during the 20th Century the majority of the buildings changed owners or became landmarks in their own right and today many of these fine houses have exclusive shops at street level.
Even underfoot, with the pavement itself designed by Gaudí (an experiment in the form of the hexagon in which he used animals from land, sea and air) and the tessellated ceramic and ironwork seating by Falqués (1906), visitors find themselves surrounded by modernism. Whilst being one of the principal route ways through the city, the avenue maintains an elegant, tree-lined atmosphere.
Outstanding international shopping lines 'Passeig de Gracia' including Loewe, Yves St Laurent, Hermés, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Armani, Carolina Herrera, Max Mara, Salvatore Ferrangano, Lacoste, Mandarina Duck, Escada, Laurel, Ermenegildo Zegna, Bu

About John Barnard
Hi - this is John and Josefina writing. As a husband and wife team, we own and manage Casa Capella 2, probably the best 3 bedroom 3 bathroom luxury serviced apartment in Barcelona, Spain today.
John Barnard purchased this apartment in 2007
Why John Barnard chose Eixample
After our experiences with our first apartment Casa Capella 1, we decided to launch the new Casa Capella in 2007. It took us 45 separate property visits over 8 months to finally decide on the new space. We bought the apartment and completely renovated the space to create three bedrooms and three bathrooms in contemporary luxury.
What makes this apartment unique
Casa Capella 2 started life as a unique space and over the years its reputation has grown - just visit the Tripadvisor website and you will see authentic reviews of guests who have stayed at the apartment,
Casa Capella 2 has been awarded the prestigious '5 Keys' award from the Catalan Government's Tourism Department - one of only 2 properties in the region.
